E-book: Evolving Standards in Video Mastering, Packaging, and Delivery

When video consumers watch TV, viewing can happen on hundreds of different devices, and on connections that range from fiber to 3G, forcing streaming video producers to support multiple adaptive streaming technologies.

Cost-effective support means shrinking video encoding, packaging, storage, and delivery costs to the minimum. High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) and the Common Media Application Format (CMAF) do just that.

This e-book explains HEVC and CMAF, and ways to incorporate them into your video encoding and distribution pipelines and retain the broadest possible compatibility with your customers. Topics covered:

  • Video codecs, containers, and protocol evolution
  • The challenges of existing video streaming formats
  • What CMAF does and doesn’t do (includes multiple workflow scenarios)
  • Typical CMAF workflows using AWS Elemental products for live and VOD files on-premises and in the cloud
